At a regional drainage forum and panel discussion this morning, sponsored by One Acadiana and the Acadiana Planning Commission, discussing the plans for a new region-wide drainage plan which is watershed based. Part of the plan calls for enhanced monitoring through gauges and modeling which will help us to prioritize drainage projects and have the best positive effect at the lowest cost.
As many of you already know, there was a fire at our beloved Fremin’s Food and Furniture yesterday afternoon. Thankfully, no one was injured. However, there was... extensive damage to the furniture warehouse and furniture department. Fortunately, the fire did not reach the grocery department. Due to the circumstances, we will currently stay closed until all possible issues are addressed professionally and we receive proper clearances from involved governmental and non-governmental experts.
To all of our loyal customers, we will be contacting you in regards to any orders placed with us. In case of urgency, please email us at email@example.com for grocery concerns and firstname.lastname@example.org for furniture and rental event concerns.
We would like to thank the personnel of all Fire Departments, Sheriff Department, Acadian Ambulance, the City of Iberia, Parish of Iberia, our employees and friends who responded. We cannot express how much appreciation we have for the first responders for their quick response and diligence. We will always be grateful for their heroic efforts. We would also like to thank everyone for their continued support during this time.
We ask that the community of New Iberia and the surrounding areas keep us in your prayers. We have faith that God will provide what is needed at this trying time. We look forward to serving you again in the future. You will always have a FRIEND at FREMINS.
The Fremin Family

LOUISIANA ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT (LED) SEEKS GROWTH-ORIENTED FIRMS FOR ECONOMIC GARDENING INITIATIVE
Small businesses invited to apply for nationally acclaimed program
Today, LED encouraged Louisiana companies to apply for the nationally acclaimed Economic Gardening Initiative, which helps second-stage firms gain new markets in other states, thereby generating new sales and importing greater value and income to Louisiana communities....
The Louisiana initiative has been recognized as a best practice by the Edward Lowe Foundation, which administers the program nationwide and hosts the National Center for Economic Gardening. Eligible Louisiana businesses will be growing companies of $600,000 to $50 million in annual revenue, and staffs of five to 100 employees. For more information and an online application, visit OpportunityLouisiana.com/Economic-Gardening. Since inception of the program seven years ago, 213 companies from all eight regions of Louisiana have combined to create 1,367 new full-time-equivalent jobs while increasing annual sales by more than $215 million.
